The 24-year-old former hostess was a competitor from the get-go, favoring retro-cum-feminine pieces that caught the eye of Heidi Klum—as well as her fellow contestants. Shoppist got a chance to talk to Streater today about what happened behind the scenes (think people warring over sewing machines), Tim Gunn’s god-like presence, and her fall/winter ’14 collection.

Oh, and Samuel L. Jackson.
